        Release Notes: Additional improvements to the UI have been incorporated into this release, with further linking of DB tables. Icons now allow the user to select the item of interest from one table, which selects a page on a different page. A basic SOAP interface has been written to allow the user to align sequencing data with the vector desired sequence for verification.

          Release Notes: This release is a major redesign, simplifying some of the components released earlier, and using an Object Relational Mapper (ORM) from PHP/PEAR. Database queries are now as simple as $sequence->name = "Rpp1"; $sequence->save; Improvements in the data model allow complex components to be added or deleted, with an 'overview' page, to show which subunits are in each multi-protein complex.

            Release Notes: Improvements in the directory hierarchy, as well as model view controller separation. More data is produced automatically from DNA coding sequences, for example protein molecular weights and extinction coefficients. Biophp has better object orientation, and now uses PHPUnit2 for automatic unit testing.
